Oct 22, 2011 - Based on the reviews here, I made an appt. to have Amanda cut my hair. I have 3b type hair - it is coarse, thick, ethnic curly hair. (I'm mixed race.) I wish the reviews on NaturallyCurly.com specified whether or not a stylist was good with ethnic curly. Amanda was very nice and spent a lot of time with me, but I don't think the Deva cut is the best way to cut my ethnic curls. In the spring I was in Los Angeles and my hair cut at Joseph Martin (on Canon) in Beverly Hills by James. It was the best hair cut I've had since leaving Los Angeles 16 years ago and he cut my hair wet. I was hoping that since Amanda had so many great reviews, I'd come away from my hair cut feeling very satisfied. I wasn't; plus, how is it possible to come away from a hair cut with damaged ends? My ethnic curls don't like gel products, like the Deva gel. I'm hesitant to try Amanda again, and most likely will continue my 16 year search to find a stylist in Maryland who has experience cutting ethnic curls.
